The linkage probably popped off, lets hope its at the handle end, remove the 2 bolts holding handle in place, it should allow you enough movement to check if both linkage rods are still connected, by the cheap little plastic clips.
if the one side is disconnected reach it with either needle nose pliers or a piece of wire w/loop. once open
u can remove offending latch until new clip is secured.
if that is not the reason you will need to try to pry the latch in if you lean into the tailgate it will take a bit of pressure off. try a hacksaw blade, or a piece of mild steel that u can bend to use.
good luck and i hope this helps

How to install the trunk lid torsion bars on a 2007 Saturn Ion?


The procedure is the same on every vehicle that uses this type of opening assist. So here is another persons instructions on a GM product.
Tools used:
Leather gloves!!
3/4" combo wrench (biggest I had)
1/2" deep socket (3/8")
6" extension (3/8")

1.With the trunk lid up and the curved part of the torsion bar against the rear trunk wall, I slipped the box end of the combo wrench around the torsion bar. I don't remember which way I had the angle of the box end facing. Just use what will work.

2.Then use the extension and the socket on the end of the torsion bar and push back so that you can get the combo wrench down past the curve, this is key. Once that is done you can remove the socket and extension. Pressure will push the wrench against the rear trunk wall.

3.Now comes the fun part. Push the wrench forward (VERY CAREFULLY) all the way past the side engine grill support and onto the peg of the hinge. The tip of my torsion bar just nicked the grill support. Make sure the wrench is seated well because it could slip around on you and cause your paint some damage and maybe even you.

4.Now that the torsion bar is on the hinge peg, you'll notice that your left with a wrench stuck on the bar... Just move (wiggle, twist) the wrench as far to the end of the torsion bar as it will go.

5.Take the extension, without the socket and place over the tip of the torsion bar. Push down while you slip the wrench past the peg. Remove the extension and slip off the wrench.

6.Now use the extension again to push down and put the roller (plastic, metal) bearing onto the peg.

7.Secure all the bolts, and lube it up.

That's it. Hope it'll help someone else. Please be careful.

Trunk won't stay up


The bar,called a strut snaps on to a small piece that is connected to the chassis of the vehicle.It should have a clip that lifts up,put the end of the strut over the piece on the chassis,and push the clip back down.You dont even need tools.
